Wednesday marked 12 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. Millions of Americans, including countless NBA players, took to social media to share their memories of that day and express their condolences for those lost.
9-11. All I could remember was seeing smoke coming up Suitland Parkway from the pentagon and praying that my Mom was ok at work.

Sitting in Mrs Moore 5th grade class, wondering if my mom worked in the Pentagon. Take a moment to remember 9/11.
